Cree Inc., an innovator of lighting-class LEDs, has recently introduced the XLamp MK-R LEDs. The company's latest offering leverages the the SC3 Technology next-generation LED platform to deliver up to 200 lumens-per-watt (at 1 W, 25C) LEDs.

With its new XLamp MK-R , Cree has announced a new product line for efficiencies of up to 200 lumens per watt. These LEDs make the next generation of 100+ lumens-per-watt system possible for high-lumen applications, including outdoor and indoor directional applications, such as halogen replacement lamps.

MK-R LEDs are available in EasyWhite colour temperatures. They provide the LED industry's best colour consistency for designs that use only one LED, claims Cree. For systems that use multiple LEDs, MK-R enables manufacturers to use fewer LEDs while still maintaining light output and quality, which translates to lower system cost.


The MK-R LED features a 7 mm x 7 mm footprint with a 6 mm optical source and delivers up to 1600 lumens at 15 W, 85C. Characterised at 85C, the MK-R component is available in 2700 K to 7000 K colour temperatures and offers minimum CRI options of 70, 80 and 90 (at selected colour temperatures). The MK-R LED is the ninth product built on Cree's SC3 Technology platform.

The innovative platform leverages Cree's advanced silicon-carbide technology, features advancements in LED chip architecture and phosphor and boasts a new package design to deliver the most advanced LED components in the industry.

XLamp MK-R LED samples are available now; and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
